Connection to Terminal Server
Connection is only allowed from machines in the MU network. For machines outside of this network, you can use a service such as a service VPN MU .
Remote Desktop client can be used to connect to the Terminal Server, which can be started by pressing
Win+R and typing
mstsc . Once it is started, the computer name should be filled in
ate.fi.muni.cz , press Connect and enter the custom name in the form
ntfi\your_login . Alternatively, many other settings can be edited before clicking on
- the General tab allows you to pre-populate the login information and save the settings to a file
- the Display tab allows you to set the client window size and color depth. Smaller color depth is suitable for slow connections.
- The Local Resources tab allows you to set up audio, discs, printers, mailboxes, and so on.
- the Programs tab allows the server to run the specified program only
- the Experience tab allows you to optimize the amount of data transferred according to network connection speeds
Linux / Unix
We recommend using the program
xfreerdp . If it is not included in the Linux distribution used by the user, it can be translated from the source code from the project page
freerdp or use pre-packaged packages, for example from
rpmfind.net ap. You can then connect with a command
xfreerdp -d NTFI -u your_login ate.fi.muni.cz (the other program switches will popup when it is started
xfreerdp without parameters).
An alternative is
rdesktop -d NTFI -u your_login ate.fi.muni.cz . The window size is set by the switch
-g . You can switch to fullscreen by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Enter.
MacPorts they can simply install FreeRDP by using the command
port install freerdp and then use the command in the terminal
/opt/local/bin/xfreerdp -d NTFI -u your_login ate.fi.muni.cz , as described in U.S. Pat
section for Linux .
Another option is to install
Microsoft Remote Desktop client . After starting, you need to click on
New and type in the new window as a
ate.fi.muni.cz , as a
ntfi\your_login and as
Connection name eg.
ate , close the window and double-click the newly created item under
My Desktops .
Log on to the Terminal Server
After a successful connection, you are prompted for a password. This can be changed / set to Faculty administration .
Please ignore any "Restart your computer to finish installing updates" message. We were unable to set up it to not show, while keeping the updates available automatically, but if the restart is needed, the terminal server does not restart itself.
Logout / Disconnection from the Terminal Server
When you have finished working on the server, you must log off by running the script
odhlášení uživatele that you find on the desktop. The session is not always logged out, the connection can only be interrupted by ending the client when the running application runs on the server and the interrupted operation can continue after another connection. Interrupted sessions are stored for up to
two days on the server, then the server terminates.
Even with a disconnect, however, we recommend that you save all work and open documents because if nobody is active on the server, it can be restarted to complete the installation of updates, although we try to restart them so that the user has the least effect.
User Terminal Server Environment Settings (Profile)
User settings (profile) are saved to
\\ate\tsprofiles\your_login . The folder can be accessed remotely from SMB's Windows desktop computers
Similarly such as the Unix home directory, if someone wanted to copy some data from or to the Documents, Desktop, and other folders, for example.
Access to local client disks in a Terminal Server session
If local disk connections are enabled when running a client (under Windows
Options → Local Resources → More ... under
Local Devices and Resources → Disk Drives ), you can access the client machine's local disks from the terminal session via Windows Explorer or Network path
Connect a Unix home directory
The directory automatically connects as a disk
Z: , or this can be used
Printers available from the client PC can be used to print if their use is enabled when the client is started (under Windows Options → Local Resources → Printers ). Printers will then be accessible by default in the Devices and Printers folder.
For printing on a faculty network printer directly from the server
ate you need to add the printer first by running the installer available for each printer
win in the column on the right.
